Ave. Is it correct to say In Latin: Irata et impia et otiosa es. Or Irata, impia et otiosa es Which one is acceptable? Thanks

September 8, 2020



Both are correct as well as Irata, impia, otiosa es, which is a syntax construction called asyndeton.


Oooh what a language! It's soo flexible! I love it. Thanks for your help I'll ask Google about asydenton. Have a lingot! :Happy:


Also correct: Irata impia otiosaque es. Although I am not sure that Duolingo's Latin tree supports the enclitic "-que" for "and" in very many places (yet, presumably).
